Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

Built 1894-1900 under the order of Tsar Nicholas III, this Russian Orthodox cathedral was truly magnificent both inside and out. Unfortunately, photos were prohibited (as seems to be the case with most churches in Tallinn) and the exterior is undergoing restoration.
